Publisher's Summary

An unputdownable EMP box set with a brilliant twist!

Lights Out

The nation's power grid has failed. Hundreds of millions are left without basic utilities, and the enemy responsible for the EMP's detonation now wreaks havoc throughout the countryside.

After an EMP crisis shakes the foundation of North America, Greenhill, an insignificant town, becomes the safe haven for a family.

Aftermath

In a flash, an EMP blast disables North America's entire east coast. Separated from her husband and daughter, 39-year-old psychologist Naomi Baxter finds herself trapped on the streets of Philadelphia. The brutal February cold gnaws at her skin as she strives to reunite with her family. Having a keen understanding of the human condition, Naomi knows that she must find her daughter before anarchy consumes the city.

Very Disappointed

This is my first review, after nearly 100 titles in my library. I feel compelled to warn others to not waste their time with this amateurish attempt. It seems that the genre is so popular that publishers are willing to print anything figuring that people will be stupid enough to buy it. (I guess they are right, I did). I will offer some positivity, very little profanities are used and thee isn’t graphic violence like in many of the genre. Beyond that, there is not much to appreciate. The stories are simplistic, unrealistic, without depth. The character development is two dimensional and unimaginative. The scenario is also very poorly developed and implausible. Even the reading is lifeless, barely any emotion is conveyed. Editing is atrocious, with numerous gaffes in sentence structure, word choice and even pronunciation!! I enjoy long reads, and listened to the whole thing, my mistake. Don’t make the same one!

I've returned 3 books in 8 years this is number 3.

Narrator is absolutely horrid. terrible pronunciation and the intonation of a foreign born Alexa.

This story is idiocracy post EMP.

A what if story. what if stupid lovable criminals found their way to a town full of idiots after an EMP? This is that rare post-apocalyptic book that has no people with any skills or common sense. Only idiots who can't figure out what to do next, even when Common Sense would give you a plethora of options. I felt my IQ dropping as I listened to this book. Tedious would describe the second set of books in this COLLECTION. when you think that the individual characters could not with any less intelligence or common sense the next chapter will prove you wrong.

Okay collapse story

The reading sounded like a robot who did not speak English as a first language. Too many mispronunciations. I did like that the stories were grouped together.
